    I found this gas tank at a sale some years ago. I have always liked motorcycles and started collecting vintage motorcycle parts. I like the look of this vintage gas tank and it was in good shape. I have been searching and trying to find out the brand and year of the tank but have had no luck. I started watching the American Pickers and really enjoyed the show, since I am from Iowa also. I noticed this section and thought someone may recognize the tank. Thanks for the help.

      i think thats a bsa gas tank because some of there gas tanks look like that. if it is a bsa gas tank then it would be worth $150.00 dollers.

      Rob is right on track, if you look at item # 216 you will see the same red/orange color..... I think the tank was the same for a 160 or 305.....................
